Tameside’s Food Survey Tameside Council Want to have your say on how to create a healthy and sustainable food environment in Tameside? The Tameside Food Partnership would like to hear what you think, about your experiences and what matters to you from food and health, food poverty or the impact on the environment and much more. We will be developing a healthy and sustainable food strategy and it is important that we consult with you as residents and workers of Tameside.  Please click the link to complete the survey and have your say 05/03/19
Single Handed Care Proposal Tameside Council We are looking to review our manual handling policies and procedures. A number of local authorities have championed a procedure known as ‘single handed care’. Evidence suggests that current procedures are out of step with what is required by people receiving care, and many wish to participate in their own care and enjoy the one-to-one relationship that single handed care offers. This review is most likely to affect those people already being supported at home by one of the borough’s six contracted home care providers. We want to hear views on the proposals by 28 March. 14/02/19
Physical Activity: LGBTQ Questionnaire Tameside Council We know that some communities are underrepresented in physical activity, with some pockets of the LGBT community being less active than the wider population, but we need to understand more about the picture in Tameside. We would like to understand more about our LGBT communities. Please take a moment to complete this survey which will help us establish the current landscape, with a view to shaping staff education programmes, producing club resources about inclusion, shaping transgender policies and potentially running localised LGBT participation programmes. 05/02/19

National Consultations

Introducing further advertising restrictions of products high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) on TV and online Department of Health and Social Care Childhood obesity is one of the most pressing public health challenges that we face. As part of the Childhood Obesity Plan for Action, the Government set an ambition to reduce the gap in obesity between children from the most and least deprived areas. The Government is concerned that despite existing restrictions, children see a significant level of HFSS adverts through the media they engage with the most and this can shape their choices and over time, lead to obesity. Therefore they are consulting on options across broadcast and online media in order to reduce children’s exposure to HFSS advertising. 18/03/19

Consultation on consistency in household and business recycling collections in England Defra While many local authorities continue to make improvements and introduce new services some have seen a drop in recycling rates and do not collect the full range of materials that can be recycled or do not collect food waste separately. Defra are seeking views on plans to make recycling collections consistent across England. They also want views on changes to require businesses to separate their recyclable waste from residual waste for collection. 18/02/19
Introducing a Deposit Return Scheme for drinks containers Defra Defra are seeking views on proposals to introduce a deposit return scheme for drinks containers including glass bottles, plastic bottles and cans. The cost of the deposit would be added to the price of drinks included in the scheme and could be redeemed when returned. It is anticipated that this will increase recycling and reduce littering. 18/02/19
